This time, Chris Ivory is the single running back lined up to the right of Geno Smith. Smith is going to take the snap and give it to Ivory again, and send him around left end. The key blocks are going to be made by Zach Sudfeld blocking down on his man, and Willie Colon, pulling to make the lead block at the point of attack.

Again, watch how it unfolds.

You might not think this is a lot of room here on the edge. But watch how quickly Chris gets to the spot, again running like he is mad at the turf.

These little blocks on the edge are all Chris Ivory needs. When he gets a head of steam, he is as fast as anyone, especially for his size. He hits the edge hard, Stephen Hill makes a nice block downfield. The result?

An eleven yard pickup, and another first down for the Jets, along the way to Chris Ivory’s big day.

The moral of the story is a simple one. When you get Chris Ivory rolling, it doesn’t take a lot of room to get him a head of steam. When you do that, watch out. He will run around you. He will run through you. He will do both. Whatever he does, it could take a lot of the burden off of Geno Smith.
